NuX Cerberus Is Great ValueFirstly, Artist once again make it easy to be their customer. 2nd, get the $390 option with power supply. I didn't, then realized I didn't have a 500mA outlet for it. Now, to the review: NuX Cerberus works. It has a low noise floor unless distortion or overdrive are on when idle. All the sounds are usable and most sound good. There are better univibe copies out there but they cost more than this multi-effect unit. There are enough choices for reverbs and delay and they are usable. Modulation effects are numerous and mostly good. The all important overdrive and distortion sounds are good. They can even be reverse ordered. The assignable spare switch is necessary because there are multiple functions under the echo and mod effects' main switches. You can also assign it to a handy boost function. The pedal seems well built and I think it would cost about twice this $ to buy so many effects separately, even if they were real cheap. If you need a quick grab n go for some situations then this would be great. I have only used this pedal as a basic floor array but this unit can take 128 presets! There are loads of option with expression capability, cab sim for headphones or DI, four cable possible. There were a couple of moments when I wasn't sure what the pedal was doing and there may be some erratic gremlins, but this only happened when making new settings, not whilst playing. I can't imagine a more affordable unit that can be as good as this. It's not high end, but who cares. It's pretty good and ridiculous value.

Nux CerberusWhat an awesome bit of equipment. Does everything I expected and more. Very happy with this purchase.
NUX Cerberus Multi Effects ReviewThe concept here is great - a lot of good effects that can be used manually like several separate pedals and with the ability to save presets. The analogue drive and distortion sound great IMO and the ability to put other effect pedals before the time based effects is cool. Setting up the software is painful as Mac security may make it difficult to upload without changing security settings - also save your presets to your laptop as they are too easy to accidentally wipe out (I’ve bought this up with NUX so hopefully next software update cures this. Good sound and value overall tilts the rating to 4 star despite some frustrations.
